as an american, not just as a journalist. i think hillary clinton, secretary of state, owes a full explanation tomorrow. am i wrong? >> no, you're right, bill. it's not only the withdrawal of the security teams. there were previous attacks and there was even chris stevens' diary which was uncovered out of the rubble, that he was concerned about security. but let me add just one more element here that is really so frustrating to me and that is five days -- five days after this mortar rocket propelled grenade synchronized al-qaeda affiliated attack took place on the consulate, the administration trotted out our ambassador to the united nations, who, i was on one of the sunday shows just after her, who said this was a spontaneous demonstration because by a hateful video. how in the world that anybody five days afterwards could draw that conclusion and tell that to the american people is either abysmal ignorance or willful deception of the american people. both in which are totally unacceptable. >> bill: we need an explanation from ambassador rice. but right now tonight i'm -- >> no, from the peop
, also, secretary of state, hillary clinton defended the ambassador to the united nations, susan rice for complaining the attack in benghazi grew from a protest. recall that ambassador rice went on a number of sunday morning talk shows and said that preliminary intelligence indicated that extremists hijacked a protest over a low-budget video that mocked the prophet mohammed. today, secretary of state, hillary clinton said the white house doesn't, still, have a complete picture of what happened that night. >> ambassador rice had the same information from the intelligence community as every other senior official did. that's the very way that i'm answering your question today because we can only tell you what we know based on our most current understanding of the attack and what led up to it. >> several senior state department officials have said that they had never concluded the attack grew out of a protest over that anti-islam video. catherine, did we learn anything else from secretary of state, hillary clinton's comments today? >>reporter: she emphasized at a think tank in washington
of state hillary clinton out on the lam. joining us to a former u.s. ambassador to the united nations, fox is contributor john bolton. ambassador, let's go first to the idea that when jay carney was ying to create some buffer, someomfort cause som zone by saying that vice-president biden was only referring to himself and the president of the united states when he said that he knew of no such request. your reaction? >> well, i cannot believe that. that is why there is a national security council staff at the going on at the state department at the defense department, to make sure that the critical issues are brought to the president's attention. this was obviously a very high-risk posed and, indeed, it was opposed where al qaeda killed our ambassador. the entire national security staff to list? biggest if so and his comments seemed to indicate that the maid is the state depament's responsibility alone, want to know what is going to the mind of diligence and right now and, perhaps an even more importantly what is going o the mind of bill clinton that his boss, secretary has just been determi
committee. listen to secretary of state hillary clinton's remarks at andrews air force base at the return of the ceremonies for the four americans murdered in benghazi. >> we have seen rage and violen directed at american embassies over an awful, internet video that we had nothing to do it. it is hard for the american people to make sense of that, because it is senseless. lou: the administration's references to that internet the internet video as the incipient cause of the attacks is frequent and it was persistent. this is president obama, 11 days later, in front of the united nations general assembly, listen as the president continues to ace the blame over the benghazi terrorist attacks. >> there is no speech that justifies mindless violence. [applause] there are no words that excuse the killing of innocents. there is no video that justifies an attack on an embassy. lou: today, even after a state department official denied the video had ever been part of their assessment, clinton's undersecretary, patrick kennedy, tried to rationalize the words and actions of the administration end of th
have been called. secretary of state clinton has not been called to testify before the committee. while darrell issa has not directly criticize secretary clinton, one of his lieutenants , a ut representative, did on tuesday, arguing the white house and clinton had been more concerned with normalizing relations with libya posing new government and with security. the hearing should get under way shortly. h[captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2012] >> the committee will come to order. would you please take your seats? perhaps most appropriately today and the oversight committee mission statement reads "we exist to secure two fundamental principles. first, that americans have a right to know that the money washington takes from them is well spent. second, americans deserve an efficient, effective government that works for them. our duty on the oversight and government reform committee is to protect these rights. solemn responsibility is to hold government accountable to taxpayers, because taxpayers have a right to know wh
compromises. >> the histories of both clinton and reagan, the big -- it is hard to know whether the republican party, where they will point the blame if that happens. this question is how they decide to 0 spend the next four years. i think it is hard to tell. there is some hope in looking back. >> reagan was also considered a far right lunatic running a far right republican party at the time, by whoever the tom equivalent was at the time. but in fact, he wasn't. life is just a little more complicated despite your careful analysis. >> he raised taxes when we -- >> that's why i think parties in opposition tend to be less responsible than parties in power. i think you would tend to agree with that. you are agreing from your point of view. i can think of times when the other party also behaved irresponsibly. and the question to me is, if romney is elected, then you have the party that you think was irresponsible now in a position where they have to govern, and we'll see what happens with that. this generally tends to pull parties more toward the center no matter what. i think when someone becomes
an incumbent. the one that this debate in terms of viewership tied with was in 1992 when clinton ran against bush. again, when an incumbent was being taken out. the reason so many people tuned in is because they know obama's taking the country in the wrong direction. they know they're underemployed. i don't care what number the obama administration gets flashed up on a tv screen, they know they're out of work, and they wanted to see if they're comfortable with the challenger. not only were they comfortable, they'll keep being comfortable. the reason romney is going to keep doing very well in the debates is because you never get to see him. the media tells us, you know, gives us snippets, paraphrase, in other words what he was trying to say is. let's see what he said. >> sean: if you want to look at polls -- we're still 29 days out. four weeks in a campaign we all agree is an eternity, but pew, battleground, politico, rasmussen. it goes deeper than that. romney is up in florida in a poll, up in virginia in a poll. >> even in ohio. >> sean: dead even in ohio. it's a two-point race in pennsylva
. in terms of viewership tied with was in 1992 when clinton ran against bush. the so many people tuned in is that they know they're unemployed. and there is -- just wanting to see if they're comfortable with the challenger and there is a reason he's going to keep doing well is because you never get to see him. the media tells us that there are snippets and in other words they're trying to say let's see what he says. >> there is four weeks of the campaign we agree but pew battle ground and rasmussen. this is ohio and there is a two-point race in pennsylvania. and there is a one-point race in wisconsin this is putting obama in a position to defend, defend. and there is i'm telling you they're way behind the curve. but those polls, battle ground polls most of us conducted before the debate. and i thought numbers were screwy before. soy just write them off as screwy. debates not about numbers this move is many numbers as anything i've seen there is internal structure of the race that made it accessible. >> independents there is an eight point advantage for obama in 2008. >> right. >> and t
be information that is classified and can only be dealt with in classified sessions. as secretary clinton has said. the american people expect that the family who lost loved ones -- families who lost loved ones deserve an accurate accounting. we lost friends and colleagues, a cross section of those who put their lives on the line every day. in the inherently dangerous work of diplomatic service to our nation. the secretary has already appointed a review board and is working to determine if our security systems and procedures where appropriate in light of the threat environment and whether they were properly implemented. the secretary has asked us to work as quickly and transparency as pot -- transparently as possible. this is a complicated review that will take time. we will be better able to assess the information we have. until then, it is an incomplete picture and, as a result, our answers today will be incomplete. we have always made clear we were given the best information we had at the time. for example, if any administration official, including any career official, were on television s
of state, hillary clinton and other personnel. can we talk about that? or not? >> if it was in a classified setting the only thing that i would think is appropriate is any inconsistencies you have seen in testimony today you could relate. otherwise, the specifics i could not judge. >> it comes down to what caused this? miss lamb, i have read your testimony. it would be horrible to watch what was going on. and the same night i read another account, at 8:30 p.m. the ambassador said good night to a visiting turkish diplomat and the streets were empty but at 9:40 p.m. an explosion was heard by agents located in building b. it is absolutely preposterous to me that we would watch ambassador rice go out and say, five days later, i would sit in a briefing and, no, you have it all wrong. this is not a terrorist attack. this is a result of a 15-minute youtube. we are in denial or, unfortunately, and some of the members are concerned because i have to tell you it is very unfortunate that terrorists don't recognize this is an election year. they tend to do what they want any time they want and when we
clinton say it was act of terrorism. is it? what do you say? >> we're still doing an investigation. no doubt the kind of weapons used, ongoing assault, that it wasn't just mob action. >> september 25 at the united nations -- >> there are no words that excuse the killing of innocen innocents. >> al-qaeda and other groups launched attack and kidnappings from t malti neighboring countrys. now with increased freedom to maneuver, they're tex ending their reach and network in multiple direction. >> september 27. >> it was a terrorist attack. >> the reason i think it's clearly it was a terrorist attack because a group of terrorists obviously conducted that attack on the consulate. against the individuals. >> october 8. >> today, al-qaeda is on appeal and usama bin laden is no more. [ applause ] >> more sound was added after the hearing today on capitol hill. libya scandal grows worse. will it impact this election? how? fox all-stars discuss that. when we return. >> bret: we thought we'd start with the panel after the long 11-minute piece you watched. steve hayes for stand stand. mara lias
was lying, that jay carney was lying, that hillary clinton was lying and susan rice was lying and anybody else from the regime who went out and tried to blame what happened to our ambass dar at benghazi and in cairo on this video, were lying, big lifetime. >> obama, shortly after the attack, told "60 minutes" that regarding mitt romney's response to the attacks, specifically in egypt, the president said that romney has a tendency to shoot first and aim later. given the fact that so much was made out of the video, that apparently has absolutely nothing to do with the attack on benghazi, that there wasn't even a protest outside of benghazi post, didn't president obama shoot first and aim later? >> first of all, jake, i think your assessment of what we know now is not complete. this is a moving picture. and people who on the night of an attack, or the day after claim they know all the facts... without making clear that what we know is based on preliminary information, are not being straight. and they're, in some cases, trying to politicize a situation that should not be politicized. >> given
clinton who we haven't seen much in the last new days is meeting with barack obama. it's a big news when he takes a day off the campaign trail. i'll remind everybody watching fox right now the day after september 11th when we lost our ambassador and three other brave souls the president went onto campaign in nevada. he reference epd the attack, went on, kept on the campaign trail and now these questions linger. i think before the election takes place we should know the truth about the economy, what the numbers really mean and we should know the truth about the sensitive issue of benghazi. this is a critical issue. whether it was confidence, or corruption, or politics we don't really know. but we know that they said one thing, and that was verify plea untrue. >> reporter: interesting that secretary of state hillary clinton is meeting with the president. there seems to be a schism in their narratives. it was hillary clinton who not immediately, but soon after started referring to this as a terrorist attack, well before the white house was willing to. and in stark can tros to what ambassado
no longer supports it. >> we put it together with the former clinton budget director. >> who disavows it. >> this idea came from the clinton commission to save medicare chaired by senator john breaux. >> which was rejected. >> if we don't fix this problem soon current seniors get cut. 10,000 people are retiring every day in america and they will for 20 years. >> martha, if we just did one thing-- if they just allow medicare to bargain for the cost of drugs like medicaid can, that would save $156 billion right off the bat. >> and it would deny seerpz choices. >> seniors are not denied-- >> absolutely. >> they are not denied. look, folks, all you seniors out there, have you been denied choices? have you lost medicare advantage. >> because it's working well now. >> vice president biden, if it could help solve the problem, why not very slowly raise the medicare eligibility age by two years as congressman ryan suggests? >> i was there when we did that with social security in 1983. i was one of eight people sitting in the room that included tip o'neill negotiating with president reagan. we all

clinton style shift toe the center where he tried to triangulate. he has been proud, rather aggressive liberal both the way he governed since the 2010 midterms and in his campaigning. and i think the romney campaign and rnc have an ad out right now calling president obama a liberal. identifying him as such for voters which makes voters jobs a little bit easier. this is opening for romney campaign to continue to make that point and tie his policies with that idealogical label. martha: steve, they will be both out in force in ohio over the course of this week. rob portman will be campaigning with mitt romney as will chris christie. talk to me about the tightening in ohio. >> ohio, it is, isn't too much to say ohio is crucial obviously. if you look at the polls i think there was a sense both in public polling and internal polling for the campaigns that ohio was slipping away from republicans in a state that they need to win. now seems there is some tightening. there was a poll out in michigan last night shows president obama only up three points there. if president obama is only up three
